Today's linux-next merge of the broadcom tree got a conflict in:


between commit:

52e6676ef56f ("treewide: Replace GPLv2 boilerplate/reference with SPDX - gpl-2.0_30.RULE (part 1)")

from the spdx tree and commit:

889390f83d4e ("arm: bcmbca: Move BCM63138 ARCH_BCM_63XX to ARCH_BCMBCA")

from the broadcom tree.

I fixed it up (I just removed the file) and can carry the fix as
necessary. This is now fixed as far as linux-next is concerned, but any
non trivial conflicts should be mentioned to your upstream maintainer
when your tree is submitted for merging. You may also want to consider
cooperating with the maintainer of the conflicting tree to minimise any
particularly complex conflicts.

This is now a conflict between the arm-soc tree and the spdx tree.

There was a link in the cover letter that I sent to the arm-soc maintainers referencing your first email. Not sure what else we could have done to prevent that conflict.
